With no electricity, flooded roads and strong gales, the storm had left the town battered. Forced to stay indoors, with no connectivity, Frank was home alone with his family. Like the rain, endless conversations, games, stories flowed. He felt connected to his family after ages!

    There can certainly be blessings in a change in routine. I remember being snowed in with my family with no electricity for a week. It was a wonder time of reconnecting. One that I remember to this day. 😊 good take on the prompt!

      So glad that this connected with you instantly. Wish this generation does more of actual connect than the virtual one. Thanks for the lovely pic prompt Kat πŸ™‚

    You highlighted something which is really missing in families these days!! The family bond replaced by bonds with electronic devices!

      Yeah, I feel so much pain to see the family bonding disintegrate.

        It is very very painful! Earlier people would fight and separate or stop talking…now with technology, people automatically isolate themselves in the bubble and stop talking!

    This was our tale this vacation, Radhika. With no connectivity to the world – a broken television, newspapers that flowed away into the waters, flickering electricity – we spent our days in the company of children playing away silly games. In a digitally connected world, it takes a forced case of no digitization, to actually connect with near and dear.

      Your last line summed up today’s scenario so aptly Pranitha. Strange isn’t it that a calamity helps us bond , connect and unite together?
